I like to dream of nice places. I am one of those who still believe in a good core of people and things. I am active and open-minded, and so far survived despite a certain proclivity towards adventurous and dangerous activities. Getting in touch with people from around the world and share a part of my life with them is like an inner urge, without it I would feel paralysed. Whenever I get to new places, I get to the next bookshop and search some local poetry. sometimes I want to push myself to the limit. sometimes all I wanna do is to dance barefooted to Beirut music. And it's up to you to find out whether that's all true!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I joined CS in July 2012 for the first time. And now I don't want to live without it anymore.
life. music. nature. writing. poetry. smiling faces. guitare playing. hiking. huging good friends after months without them. getting in touch with different life-styles - with all my senses. human rights. finding the little things that makes the day beautiful. the concept of sustainability. scuba diving (feels like dancing under water to the best natural music).
Music, Movies, and Books
Ghana Must Go - Tayie Selasi.
Half of a Yellow Sun - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
holding a newborn baby monkey in my hands while sitting on a Zemidjan in northern Togo; hear the rain drumming on leaves of cocunut palmtrees in front of the open window; having my feet deeply in glacier snow during a sunny hot day in july, watching a baby shark swiming next to me during an open water dive.
